The North American International Auto Show is about to begin

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) at Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan is scheduled to be open on January 19, 2013.  This year more than 500 new vehicles are expected to be displayed at the show.  The NAIAS is an annual auto show and this year it will run from January 19 through January 27, 2013.  Started in 1907, one of the largest auto shows in North America held annually except for a brief period from 1943 to 1952.  The Cobo Center contains one million square feet of display area.  The show is particularly important because Detroit is home to three big auto makes, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors.

The show contains press preview days, industry preview days, charity preview event, and few days open to the general public.  During the time that the show is open to the general public, more than 800,000 people attend the show, raises over $7 million for children charities, and contribute over $500 million to the local economy.

Most 2013 and large number of 2014 models from Audi to Volkswagen and in between will be on display.  Additionally, several concept cars from Acura, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Lincoln, Nissan, Toyota, and VW will also be participating.
